violence. it already says in federal law if you have a domestic violence conviction if you have a domestic violence protection order against you, under federal law you are not supposed to be able to have a gun. colorado did not have in place a mechanism at the state level to enforce that. so what passed this morning, the first bill that advanced this morning in colorado would create that mechanism at the state level to keep people who have been convicted of domestic violence related offenses or have domestic violence protection orders against them. there was a loophole that said you have to apply and get a license and get checked out to give you a concealed carry permit. but none of that had to happen in person. you could do the whole thing online. from your padded cell or wherever. nobody ever had to look at you face to face. under the second bill that moved today, now that loophole will be closed in colorado. you cannot do it just online. another bill that passed today would close the loophole that says not everybody has to have a background check before they buy a gun. buying a gun at a

for sticking with us this hour. this weekend at harvard law school, the official who just stepped down as the top lawyer in the pentagon weighed in on the next big civil rights cases that are coming up before the supreme court. this month the court is going to be hearing arguments on same-sex marriage under the law. and former pentagon general counsel jay johnson told the black law students association at harvard, quote, our gay brothers and sisters who are in the struggle for marriage equality right now in the state legislatures and in the courts of this country are marching step by step the same road toward equal treatment under law that we know so well. their cause is our cause. he went on to explain his view that the impact of laws banning equal marriage rights would be particularly -- and are now particularly cruel and unfair, in his words, to people who are serving in the u.s. military. the same argument is made by iraq and afghanistan veterans of america in a brief that they have filed, along with a number of other former military officials with the supreme court about one of th

you can say it has worked anywhere else. what are we doing with this emergency manager law in michigan, and in detroit now specifically? what we're doing is giving up on the idea that we fix problems in america through a system of government that is called democracy. and we're giving it up for something that has no proven record of being any better. you lose democracy. you don't necessarily have any hope of fixing anything. why did you give up your deem democracy then? why this is not a bigger national story still blows my mind. r have staying power... or just seem to fade away, day by day? don't compromise. new vidal sassoon pro series from the original salon genius. starts vibrant, stays vibrant. precision mix formula saturates each strand for 100% gray coverage. hydrablock conditioner helps fight fade out for up to 8 weeks. new vidal sassoon lets you say no to compromise and yes to vibrant color like this. new vidal sassoon pro series salon genius. brilliantly priced.

are -- they have the absolute right to choice. and it is the law of the land. so that is where we are with that subject. now, on the gay rights, here is how i feel about that. ten years ago, this was a huge issue, absolutely huge issue. ten years from now it will not be a huge issue. it's the fastest movement of a wave of understanding, of pure rights and equal protection under the law. >> even in south carolina you think there has been an attitude change? >> there has definitely been an attitude change in south carolina. and we see it moving rapidly, as a matter of fact. now south carolina is a state that does not -- does not allow same-sex marriage. but we'll see where that takes us in ten years. there is a definite movement, a definite change of attitude in south carolina, yes. >> okay. let's say you win the primary, and then it's, of course, i would pick maybe mark sanford on the other side. i don't know what the polling is there, but it would certainly be great to see you defeat him. could you defeat him? >> well, ed, let me be really clear about something first. we have got

in the intelligence community. but the law itself should not be kept secret. and it's this fight against secret law that has been so important. it shouldn't have taken seven requests. that's how many i made, rachel, over a two-year period to get this kind of information. now, i will tell you just in the last few days, the letter from mr. brennan was quite forthright on the question of making sure that he didn't believe the cia could use drones in the united states. the letter from mr. holder, while moving in the right direction, he in effect said he could only see using the military against what would amount to a foreign attack in the united states like pearl harbor. there still are some unanswered question there's. that's what we're going to have to keep digging into. i think you saw today those efforts will be bipartisan. >> senator ron wyden of oregon. that distinction that you're making there, the difference between secret operations and secret law is one that for all these different ways of resistance i believe is really starting to sink in, and the way people talk than in a way that i think i

it couldn't be done! today president obama signed into law the reauthorization of the violence against women act. finally. it took a long time, but it finally got done. and it got done in the end mostly because republican leaders in the house decided to get out of the way. look, when it passed in the house, it got more democratic votes than republican votes. that is usually not how it works. usually the party in control in the house won't allow something to come up for a vote unless their own side is for it. but in this case republican leaders in the house decided to get out of the way. they folded. and as a result we got a rare signing ceremony today in washington. i almost feel like i will jinx it if i point it out, but things are actually sort of starting to happen in washington. and they are happening, i think, to the extent that things can get done around the republican leadership in washington. look at this. this very short piece of tape. but watch carefully. >> that is him. >> that was him. >> it was? >> yeah. >> was that him? yeah, it was. really? was that him? yeah. him. the him in
